Saturday’s action at the Olympics in Tokyo is highlighted by the first gold medal events in swimming. There’s also the debuts of 3x3 basketball and skateboarding. And in the morning, the U.S. women’s soccer team plays its second group stage game against New Zealand, hoping to rebound from a 3-0 loss to Sweden in its tournament opener.
In addition to TV coverage on NBC’s broadcast and cable channels in English and Spanish, every event of every Olympic competition will be available to stream live on NBCOlympics.com. You’ll have to log in with your pay-TV provider, whether cable, satellite, or streaming platforms including YouTube TV, FuboTV and Sling TV.
Some track and field, gymnastics and U.S. men’s basketball events will also be available outside that paywall on Peacock, NBC’s online streaming service. All events except U.S. men’s basketball games will be on Peacock’s free tier; men’s basketball will be on the paid subscription tier.
Replays of some events from across the Olympics will also be available on Peacock, along with highlight shows and features.
If you have a Comcast Xfinity cable subscription with an X1 box, live online streams of events are integrated into the sports tab right next to TV broadcasts.
NBC also has apps for mobile devices, tablets, and connected-TV devices including Android TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Samsung TV, and more. There’s a FAQ page on NBC’s website here if you have more questions.
